Delegates from Cambridge visited Brooke Weston to talk to Year 12 students about applying to the university. Clemency Cooper, HE Access Officer for Pembroke and St Catharine's Colleges, was accompanied by Joy Newton and Josh Weston, who are both second year undergraduates.
They gave a presentation during the Year 12 assembly and spoke to students afterwards who were interested in learning more, both about the application process and life at Cambridge.
Clemency said: 'We take 3,500 students each year at the Cambridge Colleges and have about 15,000 applicants across all subjects and Colleges. I liaise with schools and colleges under our Access scheme. People just don't realise that applying to study at Cambridge is something they can consider. It's ensuring they have the information to make their own decisions; it's not necessarily a recruitment exercise, it's just making sure that it's something they may consider themselves.'
